Does anyone on the face of god's green earth have a picture of Hexy in a Hershey Bears jersey?

any help is appreciated THANK YOU!

My suggestion is to contact the Bears. There were probably photos of the one game he played on injury rehab (he got hurt in that one game, too).

As far as his pre-NHL days, the team likely has some in its archives for publicity purposes (media guide/yearbook photos for instance).

I remember watching him play in Hershey. FWIW, he wore number 30 for Hershey. They yearbook photo of him is in a turtleneck and the big bushy haircut. I did a quick google image search but couldn't find anything.

ok so he did wear 30 ... do you recall if names were on the back of the jersey?... whole reason to this is because I plan on getting a hextall bears jersey and want it to be as accurate as possible

I'm pretty sure there are some hockey cards with him on the Bears... look on eBay. Someone also did a custom McFarlane figure on eBay... looks like they put #30 on it.

Update: Here is a link to an ITG heroes and prospects card with him on the Bears:

Here's a cool video from the playoffs. You can see Hextall in it.

Weird, I thought the Flyers AHL affiliate when Hextall was there was the Maine Mariners.

I believe the Flyers were affiliated with them till the '84-85 season. Hextall played a few games at the end of the '84-85 season for the Bears.

that footage is chilling..

Don Nachbaur 26 10-31-2010 04:09 PM

The best part was I was there for that. BTW, it was in the Playoffs. A couple of years ago I saw Hextall at the Beanpot and he was chatting with Kevin McCarthy (#6 for the Bears and current Flyers Asst. Coach). I said to them that video was on youtube and he turned to McCarthy and said "On youtube..really? We'll have to check that out". I said that I thought he was gonna really pound Leigh Verstraite, and he said "That guy was such a tool." We talked for a couple of minutes more before he went to talk to Brian Burke.

for sure he wore no. 30, not sure about names on back. getty images has nothing from his pre-flyer career. you can sort of see the font for the TV numbers in the card posted above but not the back.

as someone said i would contact the bears and see what they've got, you won't find any huge publication with info and photos on the bears that was not team affiliated.
